Have you ever been told you do something like a girl? Or told someone they were “doing that like a girl?” Have you ever considered the implications of that? Now consider this
BRISTOL, Conn. — Female pitcher Mo’ne Davis led her team into the Little League World Series, throwing a three-hitter Sunday to lead Taney Youth Baseball Association Little League of Philadelphia to an 8-0 victory over a squad from Delaware.
Davis struck out six in the six-inning game in the Mid-Atlantic Regional championship game.
The 13-year-old will become the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series in 68 years.
A girl playing with the boys, out throwing them and out playing them. It is time to rewrite what it means to do something “like a girl.”
It’s time to end the sexist term the negates the worth of girls and women.
